REBRAND NIGERIA CAMPAIGN

The current image of Nigerians abroad is a serious concern to us. That was why we launched this campaign to be able to change this negative global perception about our people. Through this project, we are also committed in changing the mindsets of Nigerian youths through inculcating our national values in them so that they can fall in love with their fatherland and begin to “Think Nigeria, First!”

The Leadership Show is an online platform that features global leaders every Wednesday by 12 noon WAT. Through the Show, we address issues that impede the development of Nigeria and the African continent by changing mindsets and negative orientations of our audience.
